ICT in cultural heritage

Closing Date:

The 2nd AMICUS Workshop investigates the potential of a motif - as a metaphor for formulaic knowledge structures, and a complex expression of semantic content - applied to narrative discourse in literature, fairy tales, and scientific text. There is a wealth of ongoing research, aimed at creating knowledge schemes to encode higher-order content agglomerates which are semantically interpretable both by humans and machines. Without a doubt, advanced subject access in digital repositories would greatly benefit from the isolation and application of indexing expressions above the term level.
